Practice Area

RIA and Financial Services

At Katz Teller, we have unique experience representing private equity funds, Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs), wealth management firms, and investment advisors in ownership transfers, practice acquisitions, lift-outs, and other operational matters. Understanding how these businesses operate allows us to provide efficient, value-added counsel to our clients.

On the sell-side, our M&A team has successfully closed dozens of strategic transactions representing RIAs and other wealth managers located across the U.S. Having completed multiple transactions with most of the leading RIA acquirers, we are familiar with and understand their often complicated transaction structures and business philosophies, and we have built collaborative and beneficial relationships with their internal and external counsel. We understand that our selling clients are partnering with the buyer for the duration. Perhaps even more important, we understand the critical importance of proper tax and entity structures for both the selling entities, as well as the legacy management companies often employed by the sellers that will continue to manage the enterprise in the future.
